KATIE HEINSOHN

SSW, MSW Intern

We all experience trying to find our purpose, self-acceptance, and identity. At times we feel loneliness, isolation, confusion, and a sense of hopelessness.  These types of emotions can weigh heavily on our mental health and stop us from being the best version of ourselves and keep us from following our bliss.  You are not alone in these thoughts and feelings, and you do not have to take this journey on your own.   


My experience is working with children, teens, and families.  I use a trauma informed, strength-based approach. Your voice will be heard, and I will work with you to create a safe and empowering place where we can take your journey of self-acceptance together.
